QoS
Quality of Service (QoS) enhances the experience of using a network by prioritizing the trafc of different applications. A QoS Rule identies a specic message ow and assigns a priority to that ow. For most applications, the priority classiers ensure the right priorities and specic QoS Rules are not required. QoS supports overlaps between rules. If more than one rule matches a specic message ow, the rule with the highest priority will be used. QoS (Quality of Service): Enable this option if you want to allow QoS to prioritize your trafc Priority Classiers. HTTP: Allows the access point to recognize HTTP transfers for many common audio and video streams and prioritize them above other trafc. Such streams are frequently used by digital media players. Automatic: When enabled, this option causes the access point to automatically attempt to prioritize trafc streams that it does not otherwise recognize, based on the behavior that the streams exhibit. This acts to de-prioritize streams that exhibit bulk transfer characteristics, such as le transfers, while leaving interactive trafc, such as gaming or VoIP, running at a normal priority. Name: Enter a name for the new QoS rule in the eld provided. Priority: Use the drop-down menu to select the desired priority: Background (BK), Best Effort (BE), Video (VI), or Voice (VO).

Troubleshooting
This chapter provides solutions to problems that can occur during the installation and operation of the DAP-3520 Wireless Access Point. We will cover various aspects of the network setup, especially the network adapters. Please read the following if you are having any technical difculties. Note: It is recommended that you use an Ethernet connection to congure the DAP-3520. 1. The computer used to congure the DAP-3520 cannot access the Conguration menu. Check if the LAN LED on the DAP-3520 is ON. If the LED is not ON, check if the cable for the Ethernet connection is securely inserted. Check if the Ethernet adapter is working properly. Please see item 3 of this Troubleshooting section to check that the drivers for the network adapters are loaded properly. Check if the IP address is in the same range and subnet as the DAP-3520. Note: The default IP address of the DAP-3520 is 192.168.0.50. All the computers on the network must have a unique IP address in the same range, e.g. 192.168.0.x. Any computers that have identical IP addresses will not be visible on the network. They must all have the same subnet mask, e.g. 255.255.255.0. Do a Ping test to make sure that the DAP-3520 is responding. Go to Start>Run>Type Command>Type ping 192.168.0.50. A successful ping will show four replies. Note: If you have changed the default IP address, make sure to ping the correct IP address assigned to the DAP-3520.

2. The wireless client cannot access the Internet within Infrastructure mode. Make sure the wireless client is associated and joined with the correct access point. To check this connection, right-click on the Local Area Connection icon in the taskbar and select View Available Wireless Networks. The Connect to Wireless Network screen will appear. Please make sure you have selected the correct available network, as shown in the illustrations below.

Check that the IP address assigned to the wireless adapter is within the same IP address range as the access point and gateway. Since the DAP-3520 has an IP address of 192.168.0.50, wireless adapters must have an IP address in the same range, e.g. 192.168.0.x. Each device must have a unique IP address; there may be no two devices with the same IP address. The subnet mask must be the same for all the computers on the network. To check the IP address assigned to the wireless adapter, double-click the Local Area Connection icon in the taskbar, then select the Support tab and the IP address will be displayed. If it is necessary to assign a Static IP Address to the wireless adapter. If you are entering a DNS Server address, you must also enter the Default Gateway Address. Remember that if you have a DHCP-capable router, you will not need to assign a static IP address. D-Link DAP-3520 User Manual 65

3. What variables may cause my wireless products to lose reception? D-Link products let you access your network from virtually anywhere you want, however, the positioning of the products within your environment will affect its wireless range. 4. Why does my wireless connection keep dropping? Antenna Orientation - try different antenna orientations for the DAP-3520. Try to keep the antenna at least 6 inches away from the wall or other objects. If you are using 2.4GHz cordless phones, X-10 equipment or other home security systems, ceiling fans, or lights, your wireless connection will degrade dramatically or even drop. Try changing the channel of your router, access point and wireless adapter to a different channel to avoid interference. Keep your product away - at least 3-6 feet - from electrical devices that generate RF noise like microwaves, monitors, electric motors, etc. 5. Why cant I get a wireless connection? If you have enabled encryption on the DAP-3520, you must also enable encryption on all wireless clients in order to establish a wireless connection. Make sure that the SSID on the AP and the wireless client are exactly the same. If they are not, wireless connection cannot be established. Move the DAP-3520 and the wireless client into the same room and then test the wireless connection. Disable all security settings. Turn off your DAP-3520 and the client. Turn the DAP-3520 back on again, and then turn on the client. Check that the LED indicators are indicating normal activity. If not, check that the AC power and Ethernet cables are rmly connected. Check that the IP address, subnet mask, gateway, and DNS settings are correctly entered for the network. If you are using 2.4 GHz cordless phones, X-10 equipment, or other home security systems, ceiling fans, or lights, your wireless connection will degrade dramatically or drop altogether. Try changing the channel on your DAP-3520, and on all the devices in your network to avoid interference. Keep your product away - at least 3-6 feet - from electrical devices that generate RF noise like microwaves, monitors, electric motors, etc. D-Link DAP-3520 User Manual 66
